My Mum has carers four times a day. I arrived this morning to visit her. I found clothes and bed linen covered in diahorrea some washed and on the clothes horse others just lying in the washing machine dirty. I looked in the carers notes and discovered the diahorrea started yesterday . My Mum also has an enormous cut on her arm and gigantic bruise. She clearly has no idea when or how she did it. As it only took me 5 minutes of being in the house to "discover" all these things am I expecting too much to expect a carer( visits of 45 minutes) to have seen these and telephoned me ... My Mum is 90 and in later stages of heart disease, the care agency and carers(?) know this. I feel very upset at the moment that carers "go through the motions" of writing in the notes "all ok, lifeline on" etc without really noticing what's happening.
